How do I repair a broken concrete lawn ornament?
Asked Jul 13, 2008, 03:32 PM
I just received by UPS an old (probably 50+ years old) lawn ornament made of molded concrete. It is 3 boys eating watermelon. When I opened the box, I found it completely broken into two large pieces---the 3rd boy had broken off during shipment. It obviously wasn't packed very well.
How on earth can I re-attach the third boy? It is a large piece and there is a lot of surface area that needs to be bonded. I am planning on re-painting the whole ornament after it has bonded, so that may be one part of your total consideration. I've heard from a friend, who suggested Gorilla Glue.
Any other suggestions?
Any help will be appreciated!
